    Interesting. How about a clarification?

    I liked Bush43 because the guy was honest. His attempt to get along with the likes of Dead Kennedy drove me nuts, as did his spending on socialist programs, and the bailout... but his unapologetic focus on defending the nation was honorable.

    I'm happy he was running the show instead of The Marx Brothers... Algore, Kerry, Edwards or Obama.

    That horse has been beat to death. Ill assume your being facetious. And I don't want to derail the pro Jimmy Carter thread on George W. Bush. But the clarification came in posts 77&78.

    Of course they do. But he did such a horrible job when he had the chance that he should just keep his pie hole shut and get on with his life. Carter was as useless as nipples on a bull.

    There's been times when I wished my bulls had nipples. I understood your opinion the first time.

    Which Clinton? I think the media seeks out Jimmy to get his two cents. He just needs to reflect on his own failed presidency and then tell the media he has no opinion and to leave him alone. And shame on the media for even bothering the guy.

    Most people probably don't remember Carter. He was my first Commander in Chief. He and Zbignew decided the Shah of Iran was a bad person; no doubt because he killed or imprisoned a few dozen of his detractors. They backed Khomeini and expected him to do a better job at human rights than the Shah did; but within months of his return to Iran from exile he murdered 100,000 of his enemies. Then of course when the kidnapping of Americans happened, Carter stumbled and bumbled his way through that for a year and a half and never did get them released. It took the absolute fear of Ron Reagan for Iran to let our people go. And of course we can call that a one-time incident and look at his other failures; like lack of gasoline and 10 hour lines to gas stations, odd-even license plate days for even being allowed to buy gas, 20%+ mortgage rates for even prime borrowers, letting USSR march into Afghanistan, etc. And the one that bothered me as much as the others - Jimmy Carter, as a favor to Coca-Cola for funding his Gubernatorial and Presidential elections put Coca-Cola puppets in his cabinet and helped push through an interim price support program where people who processed sweeteners (Read: Coca-Cola) were paid an amount of money by US Government (read: taxpayers) so that the sweetener Coca-Cola bought and processed was almost free. The infamous "coca cola law" stayed in effect through 1979; and of course went away when Ron Reagan and the GOP took over the executive branch. With that much lower cost of manufacturing, Coca-Cola greatly benefited from Jimmy introducing TCCC to our communist enemies.

    I know none of our POTUS'es are perfect, but this guy really rubbed me the wrong way with his abstract failures and his anti-Semitic views.

    Nobody expects perfection in a political candidate, but think of how refreshing it would be to have an actually principled and honest man holding the highest office in the land?

    I totally agree Henry. I have some tongue-in-cheek AND some sane ideas for fixing that.

    Tongue-in-cheek humor idea. We all know that GOP and DNC want to be in power. Whoever is on the outside looking in has a huge motivation to beat the person in power. If we had a third choice instead of DNC and GOP when we show up at the polling booth and the choice was "These retards suck - give me fresh choices" that could change the game. If you pull choice #3, then it puts the present party in power for another year and the competitor gets a year to find a better choice. The party on the outside doesn't want to wait another year for America to chose (call it a punishment against the outside choice), so up front they will be forced to come up with better candidates.

    Serious idea: I think the biggest problem is that when the average American turns on the TV during campaign season to watch the debates or political commercials, all they see is GOP and DNC. The reason is clear - GOP and DNC have all that money from the Super PAC's etc. If every campaign dollar was put in a big kitty and had to be equally spent among all approved parties; each party would have equal air time, equal newspaper time, equal face time at those debates. GOP and DNC each paid over a billion dollars for us to decide between McSame & Juggs versus Obama Bin Biden; and then I think closer to two billion for us to decide between Obama Bin Biden versus Kolob Romney and Lyin' Ryan. I really think that the best choice was actually Governor Gary Johnson and Judge Jim Gray, but that America never really got to know these two guys or their platform. And there are other platforms out there too that are even less known: Green Party, Constitution Party, etc. - nobody knows about those parties when they go to pick the lever.

    This is not the time to be attacking anything, least of all Syria, and especially with this yahoo in the White House.
    Those thoughts crossed my mind as well. I also questioned if Obama might be playing his own game on Syria.

    I mean, ya gotta admit, like Obama or not, he's one terrorist killin' summabitch.

    It will be interesting to watch it play out.
